Let me tell you how I really feel (as if that’s a rarity). I really feel like women with husbands, who have been out of work for an extended period of time, need to pony up. That’s right, I said it! These women need to get off their asses and stop putting an enormous amount of pressure on your husband to find a new career or job – as if it’s not an extreme challenge for a man in his 40’s, 50’s or 60's to reinvent himself?! Go find a job yourself or consider increasing your workload. It’s do or die in this economy… if my husband lost his job, effective immediately, I would haul my size ten rear end into New York City with the determination and drive to get back into the publishing industry. I would not quit as the burden of job loss would become OURS, not his.
